No farting please, we're Americans

Raymond Chen

Apparently, when translating their Pokémon game from Japanese to English, Nintendo changed a question in an in-game personality test that asked you what you would do if you farted. In the English-language version, you merely broke a rotten egg. What, do they think kids in the U.S. don’t fart? Or that they don’t enjoy fart jokes. Allow me to clear up any confusion: Kids in the United States love fart jokes. Or maybe British kids don’t fart. Perhaps that’s it.

(For those who don’t get the subject, it’s a snowclone of the form No X please, we’re Y. Learn more here.)
